Pier Works Update

Pier Works Update

Wednesday 19 July 2017

News bulletin on Bantry Inner Harbour Development

The new Bantry Inner Harbour Development will be officially opening on Friday, 11th August 2017.

Construction works will have been completed at the Quayside and Marina. A marque will be set up on the quayside where the main social, festive and ceremonial activities of the day will be held.

The town Pier will have some structural works outstanding but will be open to the public and berthing available to commercial users as advised by the Assistant Harbour Master. Site tidy up of the construction site will take place before the opening which will be marked with an official ribbon cutting ceremony on 11th August followed by a weekend of free family fun for Bantry.

Remaining construction works will be completed in August following the official opening, however the pier and marina will remain open for use and minimal disruption is expected. Pedestrian access to the pier head pontoon will be maintained throughout this period.

We would once again like to acknowledge the cooperation and patience of all local harbour users shown throughout the construction period. This new sheltered harbour facility will be of great benefit to both commercial and leisure users bringing increased activity in Bantry Harbour and Town.
